A novel from every country

Books for diversity! I love the idea of this culturally inclusive list. Here are my contributions to it, all beloved titles which I’d highly recommend:

Japan: Diary of a mad old man, Jun’ichirō Tanizaki

Argentina: Talking to ourselves, Andrés Neuman

Israel & Palestine: Gaza blues, Etgar Keret & Samir El-Youssef

Greece: Zorba the Greek, Nikos Kazantzakis

Algeria: The parrot’s theorem, Denis Guedj

Croatia: Girl at war, Sara Nivić

Republic of Korea: The vegetarian, Han Kang

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
